When reliability and innovation pay off
W.E.B extends PowerSystem agreement
- W.E.B has been using the ENERTRAG software PowerSystem in the operational management of its wind power plants for three years
- The cooperation is expanded in 2021 by using PowerSystem for the first time in the operational management of W.E.B photovoltaic power plants
- The success story of PowerSystem at W.E.B began nine years ago
Plant managers looking after renewable energy plants need reliable IT solutions that support their operational objective of highest availability and performance. Such a diverse IT solution is the ENERTRAG software PowerSystem, which W.E.B will be using for three more years after extending their license agreement.
“ENERTRAG has been an important and reliable partner in the operational management of our wind power plants for many years. The operations management software PowerSystem with its continuously increasing functional range has become a key element of our work at the Monitoring Center,” explains Frank Dumeier, CEO of WEB Windenergie AG. “Our employees particularly appreciate the high degree of automated functions as well as the excellent collaboration with the PowerSystem team. They are quick, know what they do and always try to satisfy our needs and wishes. For this reason, it made sense for us to continue using PowerSystem in the years to come and to also integrate it into out PV plants,” Dumeier adds.
Starting in 2021, the operational management of the photovoltaic power segment with a total capacity of 18.6 MW will be added to the 592 MW of wind power capacity already managed by PowerSystem. “PowerSystem enables W.E.B to monitor both wind and photovoltaic power plants and to prepare standardized reports for their mixed portfolio. We love working with W.E.B because of their vibrant pioneering spirit, great competence and extensive experience, which in turn helps us to optimize PowerSystem in line with the market,” emphasizes Felix Bübl, Head of Software Development at ENERTRAG.
PowerSystem was designed to optimize the operations and networking of renewable energy plants and ensures accurate accounts as well as precise remote control in operational management. As there was no suitable solution on the market in 1999, ENERTRAG developed the software itself and has been improving and adjusting it to the changing conditions and requirements of the market ever since. Streamlined and transparent processed are among the objectives accomplished thanks to the software’s high degree of automation. Every month a team of 26 IT experts optimizes PowerSystem according to current legal and business requirements.
